Agnolobronzino1503to1572

Just updating my earlier compilation of pen holds in paintings with this one: a self portrait by and of Agnolo Bronzino (1503 – 1572). I noted the “pen” was not a quill, and on close inspection, is a brush! Of course, this artists has portrayed himself writing with a brush! In any case another tripod grip perhaps a bit higher up on the mid finger than most.
